** Tickets will also be available on the door, £15 (no booking fee) **
Join Algorave Elephant + warm up for the summer solstice with top notch algorithmic music + visuals over two rooms - one for dancefloor bangers and one for stranger chill-out + ill-out experiments.
The algorave movement started in London and has since reached over 90 cities around the world. Algoraves showcase diverse creativity around live coding - artists manipulating code to make cutting edge music + visuals.
"The scene at an algorave is often what you'd expect from any good techno night - a dark room, engaging visuals. a decent, bass-heavy speaker set-up, and lots of people ready to dance. .. performers at algoraves respond to each other and the audience in real time, often projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding as improvisation and experiment.." - The Wire magazine
"Live coders write computer programs live, while the programs generate their music, but the focus is on people dancing and seriously enjoying themselves" - Dazed and Confused
".. not so much a revolution as a de-volution, a rolling back to the backend of music production, where the possibilities of the encoded information inside computer software is open and endless" - Mixmag
